What is the difference between Beads & Pendants?
It’s easy to get confused between beads and pendants as they’re often used interchangeably, but they’re fundamentally different. Beads are small baubles or jewels with a hole through the centre allowing them to easily be assembled together with stringing. Your beads can then be complemented with pendants, which are ornamental pieces made from materials including metal and semi-precious stones, helping to add further colour and sparkle to your creations. Our pendants come with a small loop attached to easily make them into earrings, pendants, add to bracelet...or add to any other craft that would welcome an additional adornment!
